Storytime Presenters needed

If you’re a person who finds a room of smiling young faces undaunting and who loves to tell a good story, the Fond du Lac Public Library hopes you will consider applying to be a Storytime Presenter.

Over the years, the Storytime program has grown in popularity. Children are invited to come (with a grown-up) for 30-minute sessions of stories and play that instill a love of reading and a love of books. The library would like to expand the program, and needs help doing so.

Fond du Lac Public Library’s Storytimes for children 12 months to 5 years old start September 13, no registration necessary. Parents and kids can drop in at their convenience. The three Storytimes are broken down by age group:
